Patient Reviews
May 01, 2020
I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Elson without reservation. I have had a 4 year relationship with her starting a few years before I needed hip surgery. I was horrified about getting the surgery which I ultimately needed; Dr. Elson was very sensitive to my fears and helped me find a PT and put off the surgery for a couple years. Since then, I have seen her for a number of conditions - she is thorough, professional and very encouraging about treatments, including some that work well but aren't as well known or accepted by less open-minded physicians (i.e., she is a great balance of an MD with an open mind to fact based alternative treatments). For the record, I am a physician's son - by which I mean to say that I am not intimidated by doctors and am comfortable asking questions of them (and I know how I should be treated). I am genuinely surprised at the negative reviews here but have to wonder if those are from 'difficult' patients.
